Michael Franti & Spearhead: Stay Human Tour
July 27 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Michael Franti & Spearhead return to Asheville on Friday, July 27 to headline the Riverkeeper Beer Series at the Salvage Station for the second year in a row. The show is presented by MountainTrue and 98.1 The River, with proceeds supporting the work of the French Broad Riverkeeper – a MountainTrue program that serves as the primary protector and watchdog of the French Broad River Watershed.
PARKING: The Salvage Station has limited onsite parking with a fee structure designed to incentivize carpooling. Proceeds will benefit MountainTrue and the French Broad Riverkeeper. Cars with 3 or more passengers can park for free. Cars with 2 people cost $5 and cars with just 1 person cost $10 to park in this lot. Alternatively, there is free parking with a shuttle service running from 6pm until 11pm to and from the Chamber of Commerce parking lot at 36 Montford Ave. Further free parking with shuttle pick up is available at Isaac Dickson Elementary School at 125 Hill St. and also at Montford North Star Academy at 90 Montford Ave. The closest shuttle pick up point to the North Star Academy parking lot is the Chamber of Commerce pick up point on Hill St.
“Michael Franti & Spearhead brought such amazing energy to Asheville last year that it was a no-brainer to bring him back for this year’s French Broad Riverkeeper Concert,” says French Broad Riverkeeper Hartwell Carson. “Asheville loves Michael and he seems to love us back. Last year he took a surprise tubing float down the French Broad before jumping on stage.”
